How to completely remove ABBYY FineReader from my computer?

Answer

In order to remove the program, you may use the standard Windows methods:

  1. Start > Control Panel.
  2. Select Apps/Programs & Features in the Control Panel.
  3. Select an app you wish to uninstall (ABBYY FineReader <version>).
  4. Click the Uninstall button that appears.

And then delete the following folders (if they still exist):

  • C:\Program Files (x86)\ABBYY FineReader <version>
  • C:\ProgramData\ABBYY\FineReader<version>
  • C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Local\ABBYY\FineReader\<version>
  • C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Roaming\ABBYY\FineReader\<version>
  • C:\temp\FR<version>

Please note that folders ProgramData and AppData can be hidden.

    Hi, How can I uninstall ABBYY FineReader 14 using PowerShell command? 
    This command doesn't help me:

    msixec /x {F14000CE–0001–0000–0000–074957833700}

    I am on Windows 2019.
